Other Technical Notes
Open Access may not be ideal for all repository content. Journal content may be restricted to subscribers, selected academic content may be hosted for third-party academic review, and sensitive internal documents may have a limited in-house audience. All of these items are best stored online under some form of access control. To address these situations, Digital Commons includes a sophisticated access control system that can restrict content to authorized visitors.
